Todd County residents who signed up with Waste Industries should have their trash collected by that company for the first time Friday.
Todd County Judge-Executive Todd Mansfield spoke to WHOP News Thursday and says there may still be a few issues to iron out, but Waste Industries will do residential trash collection outside the city limits of Guthrie and Elkton.
Residents who have signed up for the service, but who still haven’t received their container from Waste Industries can call 931-552-7276 to check the status.
Waste Industries also took over additional commercial customers after Queen City Disposal left north Todd County after only a couple weeks and Judge Mansfield says that process has gone smoothly.
The judge says there will continue to be ongoing discussion about the future of trash collection in rural Todd County and that could one day mean residents would be required to sign up—though any decision will come after significant studies.
Most Todd County residents currently take their trash to convenience centers located in Elkton, Clifty, Allensville and Trenton. A one year membership to those centers costs $36—compared to the $43 monthly rate charged by Waste Industries.
Republic Services had offered residential pickup in Todd County until they abandoned those customers at the end of June.
